  •  He is so full of shit. "If I were ...." (0+ / 0-)

    Those three words alone tell you that.  As a Supreme Court Judge he'd do one thing, but as President he'd do something else?  On a social issue?  How many here would put up with that from anyone else?  "If I were ..."  Give me a break.

    What he really means is, "To my supporters who are liberal or progressive and are upset with my half-assed backing of gay marriage, let me say that I really, really am for it.  Ignore what I did and think about the fantasy of me on the Supreme Court."  Pathetic.

      Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.

        calm down when I see the POTUS talking like a middle school student copping a plea.  "If I were ... "

    •  I am really baffled (0+ / 0-)

      at your statement.

      President Obama is of course on LGBT's side regarding marriage equality.

      He pressed illinois legislature to legalize marriage equality.

      His brief will convince kennedy to support marriage equality for all 50 states.

      he has to be subtle in his brief to nationalize marriage-ban strike downs all across the country.

      President Obama's ideology is opposite Roberts.
